Forum: opensource_audio Subject: Derivations from 24-bit flac

The last time I uploaded something in 24-bit flac (http://www.archive.org/details/twist06), I expected derivative oggs and mp3s to show up after a while, but none did. Has this been improved? That is, if I upload 24-bit flacs now, will they be converted to 16-bit so that oggs and mp3s can be made?

I'm considering whether to upload an album of mine in 24-bit (it was mastered in 32-bit). It may not be worth it, since all the sounds are synthesized anyway so there won't be much audible difference, but automatic derivation from 24-bit files would still be a nice feature. The FAQ doesn't appear to have anything to say about this.

The automatic derivations here occur on uploaded 16-bit copies, to produce mp3 and ogg from those. However, the archive does *not* do 24 bit> 16 bit conversions.

If you would like there to be a 16 bit copy of your recording, that would be great! Just make and upload a copy yourself as a separate item. The the lossies will be generated from that on site.
